    RIP Larry Grathwohl - American Patriot

    I came across this and thought I'd alert the community to his passing. Like so many men of substance you never really find out about them until it's too late. Apparently Mr. Grathwohl served his country in three conflicts:
    1. As a member of a Hatchet Force unit of the 101st Airborne Division
    2. As an FBI informant on the Weather Underground Bringing Down America: An FBI Informer With the Weathermen: Larry Grathwohl, Frank Reagan: 9781484058879: Amazon.com: Books
    3. As a modern day Paul Revere in our current challenge

    Thank you for your service.

    Seldom do the members of the special units receive recognition until after their death. The Hatchet teams were part of the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam- Studies, Observations Group better known as MACV-SOG. My unit, the Black Widows, provided helicopter support for the CCN MACV-SOG that operated out of Phu Bia Vietnam. The majority of the members were Army Special Forces, Army Rangers and Navy Seals, and the teams normally consisted of six Americans and a selected number of mercenaries, depending on the mission. Seldom did a team not experience a causality on their mission. The team members were warriors of the highest order.
